Abstract:

The quality of laser cut is the most important factor in laser cutting process. All cutting parameters might have significant influence on the resulting quality of work. In general, cutting parameters are adjusted and tuned to provide the quality of cut desired. But this consumes exhaustive (enormous) amount of time and effort. Therefore, it is important to investigate the impact of cutting parameters on quality of cut. The aim of this study is to relate the CO2 laser cutting parameters namely laser power, cutting speed laser scanning speed. Laser cutting is a fairly new technology that allows metals to be cut with extreme precision. The laser beam is typically 0.2 mm in diameter with a power of 1-10 kW [1]. Depending on the application of the laser cutter a selection of different gases are used in conjunction with the cutting. When cutting with oxygen, material is burned and vaporized when heated by the laser beam to ignition temperature. The reaction between the oxygen and the metal creates additional energy in the form of heat, supporting the cutting process. For certain well defined applications, e.g. cutting metal sheet using CO2-lasers, suppliers of laser cutting machines provide a comprehensive database for process parameters.
